Emergency Ready Plan

6/27/2023 (Permalink)

What is ERP? It stands for Emergency Ready Plan. Now that we know the acronym, what does it mean and why do we need it? Below are the reasons why an ERP is so important for a business and how SERVPRO of Marshalltown can help you.

An emergency-ready plan is a genius way to identify very important locations of your business. Whether you are looking for water shut-off, electrical breaker boxes, phone panels, or internet, you name it, SERVPRO will tag it! Giving your staff the tools to identify where things are located could be a lifesaver.

Let’s look at an example. You own a three-story hotel and a pipe burst on the second floor in the middle of the night. What should you do? First, locate the main water shut-off. Easy right? Well, maybe, but does the entire staff know where to find the shut-off? Water is now flooding, and employees are scrambling to find the main stuff which could take minutes or much longer. With an ERP in place for your business, we put together an action plan that all employees can access in case an emergency should arise. Included in the ERP is a map layout of your entire building, with all the main shut-offs identified. This could end up saving you thousands of dollars in secondary damages the faster you can shut off the source and limit your damages.

Along with identifying important shut-off points, we also log your provider's information for every service such as phone company, internet provider, water, electric, cable, etc. In this log you can find the service name, address, and phone number for easy access. When you receive your plan, we can make multiple copies so they can be spread throughout the building for any employee to access at any time if needed. You can also download an app with all the information already stored making it available anytime and anywhere. The app also makes direct contact calls with SERVPRO of Marshalltown in case of an emergency!

Right about now you are probably asking yourself “This sounds great, but how much will my company be charged for such a great service as an ERP?”. Guess what….it’s FREE!! Contact SERVPRO of Marshalltown now to start the process of creating your business Emergency Ready Plan and be prepared for any unexpected event.
